    QUINCY -- Debbie Sanders Lewis will never forget the Christmas of 1997. It turned out to be the final Christmas for her son, Tyson, a special-needs child who died the next year at age 7. That particular Christmas also was memorable because Lewis and her two children were beneficiaries of The Herald-Whig's Good News of Christmas campaign, which came to their aid while the family was struggling through rough times.
